Local Markets to support when you’re in Mossel Bay
2 min read
Visiting a local market is one of the best ways to support the local community, with money going directly to artists, crafters, bakers, farmers, and so on! We’ve made a list of some of the best markets to visit in the Mossel Bay area.
The Goods Shed
The Goods Shed is a beloved flea market in the centre of town and is open daily. It is the biggest indoor flea market in the Southern Cape and has a variety of wares on sale, including leather goods, second-hand books, jewellery, hardware, delicious food, and much more. You don’t want to miss this market when you’re in town!
The Mossel Bay Craft Art Workshop
The Craft Art Workshop hosts a variety of artists’ work in many mediums, including glass art, hand embroidery, beadwork, papier mache, township art and other works. All art has been made by local artists and the Workshop is quickly becoming one of the most diverse art markets on the Garden Route.
The Hartenbos Boeremark takes place every second Saturday and every last Saturday of the month. With over 80 stalls, you are sure to find something you love. The market can be found in the Carney Building in Hartenbos, with everything from fresh produce to your new favourite dress.
Groot Brak Mark
This market is open on the first Saturday of every month and sometimes has extra market days arranged during the school holidays. The market has been going for more than 20 years and is one of the oldest informal markets in South Africa. Support local artists, crafters, and makers!
Be sure to check out some of the seasonal markets as well if you are around during the summer holidays.
